    Antelope in the Neighborhood

    Driving back from getting mail yesterday, I came across a group of at least 40 antelope trying to head across the road. Didn't have my camera handy.

    Took my camera with me today and they are still hanging around. They were quite a ways a way, but you can see a few of them in this picture...

    Just thought I'd share. I'll try and get some better pics, if I can ever separate my rear end from my chair in front of the computer....

    Nice, but I had to drive 26 hours to see one. Taste terrible.

    I agree Steve they don't taste very good.

    Man you lucky to live where you do. Best wild life i saw in the past week were the two dead mice on my traps in the garage.

    Thanks for sharing the pic Brent.
    cheers

    Looks like dinner on the hoof. Great pic !
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Managed to pry myself out of my desk chair for a few minutes right around sunset. Grabbed my Camera and a frosty beverage, and bucky and I took a short walk over the hill just to the southeast.

    I had no idea if they would be there or not, but there they were.

    I counted 46 of them...

    Here's a few more pictures...

    My dad went hunting for them once when I was a kid. He took it to the processor and got his share all in jerky. The jerky was quite good!
